Live Webinar: Query Letter Secrets

My Writer's Digest webinar, Query Letter Secrets: A Literary Agent's Guide to Pitching Your Project, returns on Thursday, November 15, 2018. This webinar covers everything you need to know about query letters: what they are, how to write them, and who to send them to. 

Query Letter Secrets includes a live presentation (plus access to the recorded version for a year), a Q&A session (where all questions will receive a response), and a critique of your query letter (all critiques will be completed by me).
